Bainbridge Island resident and EPA diver Lisa Macchio steps into water to inspect the "cap" put over creosote contaminated sediment on the bottom of Eagle Harbor.
The creosote is a legacy of the the Wycoff wood treatment facility that operated from 1903 to 1988. It was capped in 1994 with about 3 feet of sediment dredged from the Snohomish River.
This video is a story by King-5 News (Seattle). It follows EPA divers who periodically monitor the cap.
The second photo here shows a diver who visited the contaminated site being rinsed off before exiting the water.
